Sorry guys & gals for the lack of updates these few days .....

I was in Hanoi, Vietnam for some well-deserved time off, in hopes of relaxation and rejuvenation. However .... Lesson In Life #101 : Things do NOT always go as planned.

Drool-worthy?

But let's leave the ranting and rambling for another day ..... I'm spent.

Oh, and Happy B'day to Motormouth From Ipoh. This blog turned ONE (astonishingly, I might add) on 3rd March 2009. A few minutes too late, I know ... But I spent the whole day on a van, a plane, and a bus. And my derriere aches ....

In the coming post : Detailed gratitudes, accolades, and acceptance speech (?!) to those who read this nonsensical blog, supported me through thick and thin (geez ... I can't be helped, can't I?! =P), and inspired me to start blogging directly, and some unknowningly.

Oh, and of course, some bits and pieces on my 2009 Hanoi-On-A-Shoe-String Trip .....
